No Other Name

"There is salvation in no one else! There is no other name in all of heaven for people to call on to save them." Acts 4:12

As the news stations and newspaper headlines scream uncertainty and panic where should we turn? As believers our hope should have never been in those things that will soon fade away. Wealth, possessions and reputations slip through our grasp in a fleeting moment. Who will save us anyway? We know--don't we?

The above scripture tells us that there is salvation in no one else. Jesus Christ is the only name that carries any weight in the life saving department. Our relationship with Him is the only thing of lasting value in all of the uncertainty and turmoil. Living for Him is all that really matters.

When our children were young we used to sing a song with them called "Live For Jesus". I can still hear their little voices as they belted out the chorus:

"Live for Jesus, that's what matters,
And when other houses crumble mine is strong.
Live for Jesus, that's what matters,
That you see the light in me and come along."

I think I need to sing that more often.
